The WHO Regional Office for Africa has also developed a framework for implementing the End TB Strategy in the African Region (2016 – 2020). This framework supports the adaptation and implementation of the Global Strategy in countries based on their contextual circumstances. Overall, the Region wants to reduce the number of TB deaths by 35%, the number of TB patients by 20% and attain 0% TB-affected families facing catastrophic costs due to TB.
